Normally only open to the public during the day, the Hamilton Grange National Memorial is offering visitors a special candlelight tour during OHNY Weekend. The Grange was the only home ever owned by Alexander Hamilton. He built the Federal-style Grange as a refuge and was at an ebb in his career when it was completed. John McComb, Jr. had worked with Hamilton on building government lighthouses and had developed a reputation at perhaps the first prominent architect in the United States. Hamilton was intimately involved in the details of design, and referred to it as his "sweet project." Tours will last twenty minutes and will be guided.
